Fairbridge College is situated within a historic and heritage-listed rural town site. It is well-appointed with a range of natural learning environments such as bushland, watercourses, adventure therapy activity areas, pastoral and livestock areas, social enterprise areas. Therefore, the school’s curriculum can be delivered with a high degree of practical and industry relevance in an environment that is conducive to maximising learning outcomes with the required social support.
Students focus on hands on tasks and real life experiences utilising the village environment and not just the classroom. As the Fairbridge Village layout is based on a philosophy of integration with the natural environment and not based on an institutional design this has proven to provide an ideal learning environment for disengaged young people.
Students attending Fairbridge College receive a personalised learning program and behaviour support plan developed in collaboration with the school’s learning support team, the student and other relevant professional agencies under a case management process.
